Welcome to La Grange - Gite Mur de Barrez When you arrive in Marcillac, 4km from Mur de Barrez, the barn (the translation of La Grange) is the first thing you notice before your eyes settle on the stunning valley views beyond. Our barn has been designed to give you a high level of comfort combined with peace and tranquility. With a total surface of about 230m², spread over three levels, there are three en-suite bedrooms with really comfortable beds and luxury bedlinen. The main living floor, measuring about 100m² is fully open plan with a kitchen kitted out for the keenest of cooks, a large dining area, and two seating areas separated by a rotating log burner.

Our barn has been designed to give you a high level of comfort combined with peace and tranquility. With a total surface of about 230m², spread over three levels, there are three en-suite bedrooms with really comfortable beds and luxury bedlinen. The main living floor, measuring about 100m² is fully open plan with a kitchen kitted out for the keenest of cooks, a large dining area, and two seating areas separated by a rotating log burner. Walk through the sliding doors at the far end to arrive at the perfect terrace, overlooking the valley. Hanneke and Tony, the owners, live next door, and their philosophy is to provide you with a great stay from the moment you arrive right up to the moment you leave Marcillac. On arrival all beds are made, soft towels are laid out for you and, if you so wish, you can enjoy a wonderfully home cooked meal. Your holiday can be as relaxed or as active as you wish. If you need to recharge your batteries, then why not chose a spot in the garden to read a book or enjoy the sunshine. If you want to get out and about, there are so many activities at close proximity: swimming, cycling, walking, horseriding, balloon rides, skiing, golf. Food is important in this area: Mur de Barrez is a Village Gourmand, in part due to its great restaurant, but also because of the quality of its artisan bakers and butchers. From organic farms, to the dairy which produces the famous Cantal cheese, if you like your food, you can't go far wrong here. La Grange is open all year round and whilst outside height of summer there are fewer people in the area, it only helps to highlight even more the extreme beauty of this area as well as the luxury and comfort of your home from home.
